Mother's Day is a special time of year to honor the unconditional love and dedication of mothers around the world. It is also an excellent opportunity to show appreciation for God's gift of motherhood, and celebrate it with prayer.
Mothers are one of God's greatest gifts and there can be no better way to express our gratitude than through prayer.
One way to pray on Mother’s Day is by offering up a heartfelt request of thanksgiving, acknowledging the Lord's grace in the form of the loving bond between a mother and her children.
By recognizing God as the source of this relationship, we can offer our prayers in recognition that God has blessed us with these special bonds.
It is important to express praise for the Lord's perfect design of mothers. We can recognize His handiwork in equipping moms with all the physical, emotional, spiritual and logistical resources needed to nurture their children into adulthood.
We can use this opportunity to ask the Lord to bless and protect our mothers throughout their lives. We can also take the time to commit ourselves anew to being godly daughters or sons - living a life that honors the Lord by honoring our mothers every single day - not just on Mother’s Day alone.
By taking time out during Mother’s Day celebrations to offer up heartfelt prayers that bless God, celebrating His divine gift of motherhood, and expressing sincere gratitude for our own moms, we celebrate one important part of what makes motherhood so beautiful: their ability to impact generations.

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. - Exodus 20:12

How do you pray for all mothers?
“Father God, I thank You for all the amazing mothers around the world who have shown unconditional love and sacrifice. They have brought all of us into this world and cared for us with the most purest love. I thank You for the precious gift of motherhood that is perfectly designed to bring out the best in each child. Bless every mother abundantly with good health and protection from harm. Fill them with Your peace and joy. Provide them with strength when they are weary. Heal them from any pain or sickness.

What does God say about mothers?
The Bible contains plenty of blessed scriptures that emphasize God's abundant love for mothers. In the book of Proverbs, He speaks highly of a mother's strength and devotion, stating, “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all” (Proverbs 31:28-29).
He also encourages us to emulate our mother's godly example. In the Book of 1 Timothy Paul admonishes readers to "Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it" (1 Tim. 3:7). This implies that He blesses us with mothers to raise us up in godly ways so that we can appreciate Him even more.
God is continuously offering His grace upon mothers no matter what circumstance they are in. In Psalms 113:9 He proclaims, "He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children". We know the Lord through His Word is providing mothers with an eternal bond and love between their children and themselves just as Jesus had for his own mother Mary.
In 2 Kings 4:26-27 He provides sustenance for the widow whose debt was paid off by Elisha. Here God blesses this mother with food for herself and her son who would have otherwise starved due to lack of resources or income.
Romans 12:4-5 tells us, “just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others". Through this passage we can see how the Lord emphasizes our interconnectedness as humans - especially within families - while providing moms with comfort knowing they are loved by Him in the good and bad times.
God is continuously reminding us through the scriptures that motherhood is an immense blessing that deserves our recognition and celebration - especially on Mother's Day.
Let’s come together in prayer thanking God for all that our mothers have done for us while recognizing God’s everlasting love surrounding them every step of the way.
How to show mom that you love her?

- You can say kind words regularly.
- Help out around the house.
- Spend quality time together.
- Offer generous hugs often.
- Listen attentively without judgment.
- Pray together now and then.
